Alright, so me and a friend(as most of my stories start) were discussing plugging in our game consoles into TVs. And of course we talk about which cable is the highest quality. He throws the classic "I have an industry inside" type of comment. His friend, who does sometihng cable-related or works with sometihng that is related to cables somehow, claims that HDMI is there for convenience and that Component is better.
Now, I was trying to make sense of this, and can't find a clear answer. I know better than to check information sites, like Wikipedia, where I'll either find comparisons that don't tell me much or information on how they work, but with no specs to compare to.
So I'm sure someone here has the answer. I am planning on using 1080 or 1080i and wanted to know: HDMI cable or Component cables.
Obviously composite cables are out the question.
